From the first moment I was born, even before I knew how to read or knew what comics were, I already felt connected to the Joker. Batman was cool and all, but he was control. The Joker was chaos, and as I grew, I just ended up loving the character more and more. The Joker is the anarchy streak in all of us. The Joker is every car wreck we can not avert our eyes from. He is a solar eclipse you look directly into even KNOWING you will go blind. People who say they don’t have a little Joker in them are liars. We all do, the good and bad, all of us. That is what makes him so great.
So obviously there is a real fervor about Jared Leto’s new portrayal of the Joker in the Suicide Squad movie. Some think there is no way ANYONE could follow up Heath Ledger’s amazing portrayal of the clown prince from the Dark Knight movies. But the truth is, everyone brings a uniquer flavor to this mad man, and from what we have heard and seen (and read about from his on set antics as the Joker), we will be getting a wholly unique and original take, and one that just may stand up there with the best versions yet (yes, including Mark Hamill).
Above, you will a video that focuses solely on The Joker and his role in Suicide Squad. Have fun kids, but remember, you are all ONE BAD DAY away from becoming him.
